fm officeDid you ever wonder how we get so much done around Five Mile? We have volunteers who work hard to make things great at Five Mile!

They mow, they clean, they prepare Wednesday meals, they do office work, teach classes, clean and paint the church, weed gardens, and they support your ministerial staff in MANY ways!

Our thanks to our volunteers AND our staff!






(Vonnie, Pastor Sam, and Sharon are just three of many!)
Congratulations to our District Licensed Ministers!

The call of God to be an ordained minister of the Gospel begins a journey! In the Church of the Nazarene, there is a process to encourage and strengthen those who believe they are called to be a minister, beginning with the call of God on their lives and following them through education, personal mentoring, times of teaching on self-care and finally at ordination.

The first step is the call of God on an individual's life to follow Jesus into the ministry of the Gospel. The next step is to seek education, mentoring, and resourcing to become the best ministers possible for God's glory. In spiritual terms, the Holy Spirit begins to do His work to mature and prepare the ones who have answered His call.

On Thursday, April 25, 2019, the Intermountain District Assembly officially recognized three of the Five Mile pastors as district licensed ministers as they pursue the call to ministry and prepare for their ordination. Congratulations to Pastor Sam Bartolome, Pastor Tom Bartolome and Pastor Diana Cayler! Thank you for sharing your journey with Five Mile!  

Pastor Sam Bartolome has held a district license on the Oregon Pacific District and on the Intermountain District. She has completed all her work toward ordination and expects to be ordained in 2020.
Sam currently serves as the administrative pastor at Five Mile Church of the Nazarene in Boise, Idaho.

Pastor Tom Bartolome is on the educational track for ordination. He has held a district license on the Oregon Pacific District and on the Intermountain District. Tom currently serves as the youth minister at Five Mile Church of the Nazarene in Boise, Idaho.

 

Pastor Diana Cayler has just begun her journey in her call to ministry and is beginning her ministry education plan. She has previously held a local license at College Church of the Nazarene in Nampa, Idaho and is currently serving as the worship ministries pastor at Five Mile Church of the Nazarene in Boise, Idaho.
